Wife Told Cops Tiger Boozed on Crash Day

12/7/2009 5:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Florida Highway Patrol wanted to get a blood test from Tiger Woods after the crash, because a witness told them Tiger was boozing earlier in the day -- this according to new documents obtained by TMZ.



FHP had requested Tiger's blood sample, after a witness -- we're told his wife -- "stated that the driver had consumed alcohol earlier in the day and the same witness removed the driver from the vehicle after the collision."

The document continues, "The same witness stated that the driver was prescribed medication (Ambien and Vicatin [sic]}."

As we first reported, it was Elin Nordegren who pulled Tiger from the crash and told cops he had taken medicine (but she didn't know when) and even brought the pill bottles to the EMTs.

The document concludes, "Impairment of the driver is also suspected due to the careless driving that resulted in the traffic crash."

Ultimately, the FHP's request for the blood sample was denied, on grounds of insufficient evidence to issue a subpoena.

The FHP has determined alcohol was not a factor.

MY GOD DAVE...ARE YOU SERIOUS? How dumb can you possibly be? He did not make 1 mistake. It looks like he made 5, 6 or even 7. Maybe even more. What planet do you live on that you would even have the nerve to excuse him for what he has done to his family? He married a beautiful woman and brought innocent children into the world and now they will have to suffer because he couldn't keep it in his pants and be a faithful husband. Who gives a crap what other people have done? We are talking about Tiger right now so why don't you try to stick to the subject at hand if you can manage? Let's get real. Those women are nothing but home wreckers and whores. They knew he was married but still chose to get involved not caring for a moment about the innocent people they would be hurting. And one of them saved 300 text messages and voicemails for over 2 years. Why do you think that is? Because she is a goldigging slut that knew she would be able to blackmail him some day. Stop making excuses for him and try to think about the one's who really deserve the compassion (his wife and children). And stop writing nonesense.

Why are the FHP trying to request his blood work? I'm sure it's more crimes out there that they can make a name for themeselves without trying to get Tiger. If it was the average Joe, it would have been done when they closed the case just as they did with Tiger Woods's case.

Medical legal issues    

MSNBC is now reporting Woods ended up in the intensive care unit after being nearly beaten to death by Elin:

"When Tiger Woods was brought to the Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., his condition was more serious than previously reported. According to a person with knowledge of Woods’ hospital admission, the star golfer had to be admitted directly to the hospital’s intensive care unit, where he was immediately intubated and his breathing stabilized."

Do any of you get it? He was put on life support after this beating.

He was "snoring" at the scene because his windpipe or trachea was damaged, not because of drug or alcohol intoxication.

Does someone who committed adultery deserve to be beaten so badly they are in an intensive care unit? He was also prematurely discharged to home to protect "the families privacy".

The next day, the batterer, Ms. Woods, says that victim of neurotrauma is "asleep".

Elin Woods deserves to be convicted of domestic violence. Not protected. Domestic violence is a crime, not an SNL skit.

So - everyone who gave him endorsements - ya think he's your "golden boy" now? Seems pretty damned tarnished to me. In retrospect, he was fake metal to start with - no one saw it - too many dollar signs. I don't give a sh** about his money - he is, as the song says, a different class of loser. Sure, he could golf, but he was raised to believe he was better than others - and not in the good way. Everyone painted these people with a different brush - the proof is now in the pudding as they say.

Elin's already moved out, to a house nearby, according to two other mainline news sources. Use Google News for updates, not TMZ.

Im the last person to defend the parade of skanks that Tiger keeps in his life but I have to point something out. You call his women whores and home wreckers, and they are. But in many ways they are typical examples of the modern American females morals (or lack there of) and self standards. Love and marriage are joke now. When a girl thinks all she has to get on her knees and she can vault from waitress to a private jet..they develop calluses on their knees overnight. He didnt find the needle in the haystack, he just hangs out in bars and clubs where these women are looking for a shortcut to lifestyle and the money that makes it happen.

Geeezz...if he had been in ICU, there is no way he would have been released from the hospital so stop spreading lies of what you supposedly heard on MSNBC.

Further, seeing the photos of the vehicle completely dispelled a woman beating a man with a golf club. What's being suppressed for lack of proof, is the fact that Tiger Woods was likely drinking throughout the day, text messaging and thinking about his whores with the biggest and most disgusting one being extortionist Rachel Uchitel, and taking those medications. Tiger Woods needs psychological help in a most serious way and all the whores, including Rachel Uchitel, need to be fed to the Florida alligators.

how many people sleep and snore in the middle of the street after a car crash? only ones under the influence of alcohol/drugs.

if lion cheetah was sober, he would be able to speed away from the drive way. elin might be able to hit the back of the truck, but she can't chase for more than 20 yards. his driving was very erratic. that's what brought attention of the tabloids. it was obvious there was more into story. small amount of alcohol may not be a big deal but mixed with drugs, they can be potent.

tiger can hide all he wants. he can't run. truth will come out one day.
